Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) voted to postpone a decision on whether or not to amend the current notice of intent to modify rules for the menhaden fishery. The Commissioners requested that the key stakeholders meet prior to the next commission meeting on March 7, to find a solution that is agreeable to all parties.

The existing notice of intent that is under consideration can be found here: https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/assets/Resources/Publications/Commission_Action_Items/Menhaden-NOI---1-Mile-Buffer.-Holly-Beach-Buffer.-Fish-Release.-Reporting-Reqs.-NOI-102023---CLEAN.pdf
